We go through lot of stuffs and sometimes when we go through, we shouldn’t allow them to distract us. The problems of life have distracting power. You can live half of your life solving problems rather walking in the prepared path and fulfilling God’s perfect plan for your life.
Don’t waste your life focusing on problems! Focus on what Christ has given to you which is the eternal life. What is eternal life? Eternal life essentially is a quality of life and not longevity. And that quality of life is given to us and deposited into our spiritual account today by the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. Longevity satan has, angels have, everyone seem to have because we are created in the likeness of God. We are created essentially spirits. Longevity in the body is not important as longevity given to us in the spirit.
Understanding eternal life is to understand the quality of life that God gave to us to live by; a life without fear, a life that dominates where ever it enters, a life that lives in God’s safety etcetera.
In John 17v3, the Bible says; “And this eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent”. So, the first step to eternal life is to know Jesus Christ. You need to have the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Any church that doesn’t have the revelation of Jesus Christ is not a church. God has a candle in each church and that candle is the angelic presence of God. When you do not have the revelation of Jesus Christ, the candle is taken off. You may just have a church building, a group of people, way of doing things etc.
How do we know Him? We know Him personally. The level of understanding eternal life will reflect its quality in your life. So, what is your understanding about eternal life? You need to understand the quality of life you have received. In eternal life, we have the knowing of the Lord double sided. We know the Lord and He knows us. But many have the knowledge one-sided.
1 John 5v11-12; “And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has [a]life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” John 10v10(b); “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Here the scripture is not talking about longevity. So, you don’t have to spend time in this life solving problems. You have the wonderful opportunity given to you to live the beautiful life He has given to you. And how do we live this life? First, we live it from our mouth. We say that and we believe it. Virus cannot hinder eternal life. Eternal life affects viruses. He has given us eternal life and we live this eternal life with power.
As you search the scriptures, you get to know Jesus (John 5v39). So, when you search the scriptures, the scripture is supposed to reveal to you if you have eternal life or not. Understanding eternal life is an amazing key to a victorious life. If you do not understand eternal life, it will affect your speaking, your personality and your purpose. God wants you to come to the knowledge of fact that eternal life is a quality of life and is given to you to live that life. It is not an assumption or a mistake or religion. In Romans 6v23(b) says; “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”. The free gift of God is eternal life. We believe, we confess (Romans 10v9-10). The principle of salvation is what operates the quality of life that we have received from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Never reduce yourself to your situation or what you feel. Never reduce yourself to what people call you or how they treat you. Eternal life given to you is far far greater than what you are experiencing or going through right now. Consider Him who gave us this life. When you consider Him, the fire of God will go through your body and work for you. Knowing God is not one way but is double way. Psalms 91v15 says; “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.” You might see many Christians using the name of Jesus but only few get result. Why? Because of the understanding of eternal life. When you understand eternal life, you will not give excuse. The spirit of the Lord is bringing to the realization that you have received the quality of life. How is the quality in you today?
In Acts chapter ten, Cornelius the centurion was a man who prayed every time, fasted and gave alms to the poor and the spirit of the Lord brought the cry of his heart by giving him eternal life. Nothing can be greater than eternal life in Christianity. If you have the gift of the spirit without eternal life, the Lord will say to you that He doesn’t know you (Luke 13v27). We receive eternal life through salvation.
